Windows 10 Update KB3176934 Breaks PowerShell
Microsoft admitted to problems with the PowerShell client because of the latest cumulative update (KB3176934) for Windows 10 version 1607, officially released on Tuesday, August 23, 2016.
The company’s PowerShell team says that due to a missing .MOF file, KB3176934 breaks PowerShell’s DSC (Desired State Configuration) feature.
Microsoft introduced DSC in PowerShell in version 4 (current version is 5). Sysadmins and developers use PowerShell’s DSC to configure and manage Windows-based servers.
DSC allows users to write PowerShell scripts that automate various tasks and is considered a must-know technology for managing Microsoft’s next wave of server and cloud products.
PowerShell users should uninstall KB3176934
